  • Call around: There are no governing entities in Scottsdale, AZ that dictate what a criminal defense attorney can charge for their services. So you may get quotes with a major gap between high and low. Remember that lower fees do not necessarily mean the attorney is less effective to defend your case. While at the same time, higher costs may not mean they are any more qualified either. There are many factors that attorneys consider for pricing including supply and demand; overhead and operating costs; competition and geographical areas.
  • Request a discount: Many criminal attorneys who defend Scottsdale criminal charges, will extend a discount if you ask for it, and if they feel you are serious about hiring them.
  • Negotiate:  A good number of attorneys will agree to an offer from the client to pay a higher amount up front, example a reasonable and fair amount of $80% to 90% of the total quote. This, in exchange for a 10% to – 20% reduction of the total cost.
